'U' Research on Cyclotron's Aid
Against Cancer Is Resumed
I~iUiversity URadio Programn
Medical research to determine the
cyclotron's value as an aid in fighting
cancer can now be resumed after be-
ing set back several years because of
the production of the atomic bomb,
according to Dr. Fred J. Hodges,
chairman of the Department of
Roentgenology at the medical sschool.
Dr. Hodges emphasized that al-
though the University has been in-
terested and active in this field of
research since 1935, the rapid im-
provements in cyclotrons will make
it necessary to obtain new equipment
to continue the study. His experi-
ments at the University were ' con-
ducted with the aid of Dr. Isadore
Lampe, associate professor of roent-
May Replace X-ray Treatment
Through research conducted at the
University and also at the Crocker
Radiation Laboratory of the Uni-
versity of California, Dr. Hodges has-
established the fact that the beam-
of neurons poured forth from a
cyclotron during the process of "atom
smashing" is capable of performing
differently from the radiation pro'-
duced by X-rays.
Whether neuron radiation will do
a better job of combatting cancer
than is now possible with X-rays is
the next important task to be under-
taken and it will require a long pe-
riod of research, Dr. Hodges asserts.
For comparison, the Cancer Commit-
tee of the University has kept care-
ful records for the last eleven years
covering 12,000 cancer patients.
Possible as Tracers
Dr. Hodges states that the cyclo-
tron has opened other possibilities.
Substances made radioactive by the
cyclotron may be used as tracers to
study the behavior of many sub-
stances within the body. A delicate
instrument permits detection of the
areas where the substance has
Such substances as iodine, phos-
phorus, and strontium, when given
internally to a patient have been
found to collect on certain tissues of
the body, sometimes showing an even
greater affinity if such tissues are
diseased. The possibilities of using
such radio-active -substances to pro-
duce internal radiation, similar to
that induced by radium, on specifi-
cally diseased tissues, Dr. Hodges,
stated, offers enticing prospects after
additional research has confirmed

MacArthur today ordered State
Shintoism abolished in Japan to de-

nation into war-and defeat.
With the expresse aim of freeing
people from "direct or indirect corn-
puiion" to belve in "manufactured"
religion, the Allied directive laid Japanese from compulsary support
down a program of broad revision, of the ideology which "has contrib-
